I love winter! Unfortunately my hair doesn’t. If like me your tresses need a little extra TLC at this time of year but the leaves have all fallen off your money tree, don’t despair! Get those dry, frizzy, windswept locks looking great again with these super cheap tips from www.simplesavings.com.au (www.simplesavings.co.nz)
Enhance cheap shampoo and conditioner.
You can turn an ordinary 200ml bottle of super cheap shampoo or conditioner into a wonderful hair treatment just by adding essential oils. Just use 10 drops each of:
Rosemary - stimulates cell growth and leaves hair feeling and smelling wonderfully fresh.
Sage - adds amazing lustre to dark hair and helps reduce dandruff. It also balances the production of sebum.
Lavender - has so many wonderful and positive properties. It is great for hair, scalp and follicles.
NB: Do not use essential oils when pregnant without checking first with a professional.
Olive oil dry hair treatment.
You can make an inexpensive treatment for dry hair using olive oil. Just wash your hair as usual then apply the olive oil, wrap your hair in cling wrap and apply a hot towel for around 20 minutes. Rinse off and you will have beautiful, glossy hair.
Pre-shampoo hair treatment.
You can make a wonderful pre-shampoo conditioning treatment for dry, damaged or fine hair can using regular ingredients from your pantry. Try this!
• one egg yolk (beaten)
• one tablespoon (four teaspoons) light olive or grapeseed oil
• one teaspoon liquid honey
• one tablespoon (20mls/four teaspoons) dried milk powder
• Mix all ingredients together to form a soft paste.
Massage gently into hair. Cover hair with a plastic shower cap or a towel wrung out in very hot water. Leave in and relax. Shampoo as usual followed by conditioner.
A final vinegar rinse can also be used to balance the alkalinity of the shampoo/conditioner.
The easiest is: one tablespoon (20mls/four teaspoons) vinegar or lemon juice in one cup (250ml) of water and use on hair as final rinse. Apple cider or a good quality white wine vinegar are best.
